Masoala National Park is Madagascar’s largest park and one of its least visited.

Primary rainforest covers a range of mountains and drops down to the deserted beaches of Antongil Bay where hump-backed whales come to breed and calve.

Wildlife of Masoala National Park

Chameleon on a leafThe Masoala rainforest is beautiful with tall pallisander trees, vines, wild ginger plants, ferns and orchids. Walking in the forest you see hundreds of frogs, including the large tomato frog. Chameleons are easily found: the most commonly-seen species include the panther chameleon, hooded chameleon and several species of stump-tailed chameleon.

Masoala is the last refuge of the red-ruffed lemur which sun themselves on the tops of trees in the morning. At night you often see eastern woolly lemurs sitting in the tree forks and white-fronted brown lemur, brown mouse lemur and the aye-aye are also resident. On the ground a surprising number of lowland streaked tenrecs rustle through the vegetation in their endless search for insects.
